Great Product!
These really work. No more stomping.

These work for my horse
I have used these leg bands on my mare for the past 3 years. The flies were really eating at her front legs and when I put the bands on she seems much more comfortable during the summer months. Sometimes a band will get pulled off in deep, tall grass and I have to go looking for it, otherwise, me and my horse are happy with this product.

I bought these as the gnats are especially bad this year and my oldest horse does a lot of stomping. It did seem to make a difference at first, and maybe because they are outside 24/7 (can go in barn if they want) but efficacy seemed to wane quickly.
I had heard they were very effective, so, yes, I am disappointed.

Doesn't work very well
These leg bands fit well. There are two sets of snaps so you can adjust them. They are citronella scented. They don't work that well on the flies we have around here. Flies still climb on the legs. They seem to be pretty durable. You need to take them off if your horse is going to get in water. I just wish they repelled better.

Product failed to work.
First 24 hours was strong scent. After that, nothing. Flies were on the bands not affected. No relief for the horses. Bands used on the back legs even caused some swelling and could not be used at all.

Kentucky Spotted Mountain Horse
To be specific, my horse has some draft horse in her background so her legs and ankles are a little larger than a quarter horse. Saying that, I did have to put her bands in the largest hole to be comfortable and not rub. These bands are a really good idea, but they only worked well for two weeks at best. Because of that, having to buy two pairs a month would be way too expensive for the entire fly season in my area. If you make sure you have the snaps completely closed, they stay put even when the horse runs, plays. In order for me to continue using this product, the manufacturer should find a longer lasting repellant, or lower the price to make two pairs a month affordable.

Nice little Fly protection for the legs
Easy to put on, stay on well but don't last as long as I wish they did nor as long as they say they can go 'up to' So they are rather expensive.

Waste of money
I tried both the collar and leg bands on all three of my horses. Flies were landing inches away. Waste of money...

Poor durability with this product.
Unfortunately poor quality materials to make this product. The snaps came out of the sealed bag broken on 2 of the leg bands. Witnessed my horse on several occasions scratching legs during the short time he wore them. Good idea...poor quality.

Glad I purchased these again ...
A single approach to fly control will not work. The only way to get relief from flies is a concerted approach that includes the barn as well as horses. As for the horses, I like these fly bands for the legs. They do work to keep the worst of the flies off my horses' feet and lower legs. I still spray the upper body and the legs to add coverage and longer protection. Together, this approach works to help prevent abscesses caused by the constant hoof slamming due to flies. I recently added the Animed Bug-Lyte to address the upper body issue. I'll know more about that in a few weeks. I wish the bands lasted longer (only about 4 weeks). Wonder if they could be 'rechargeable'. I recommend this product.

Can they be removed and put back on?
roger o on May 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's been a while since I last purchased this product, but, as I remember they were easily applied and removed as desired. They either had Velcro or snaps and were helpful for a horse which had particularly troublesome fly bites on the legs. Of course, I also used Flysect, Super 7, flyspray along with these aides. I tried the neck strap also and found it helpful. There are no cure-all's and every horse is a little different but I believe this to be a good product to help the fly control issue.
with Defy the fly how many bands are contained in each shipment?
Linda R on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Each bag has four bands one for each leg
